National McNair Research Conference

This year the NMU McNair Scholars Program was able to bring five of our students and two faculty mentors to 19th Annual National McNair Scholars Research Conference and Graduate Fair. After a lot of hard work and preparation, our scholars were able to present their research to other McNair students from across the country.

"I find the energy and optimism at these McNair gatherings to be very inspiring. The idea of striving for the highest possible academic goals is contagious. And it was a lot of fun, too!"
